Missed World Skip the Beat yesterday? DJ Grenadier was on the decks, spinning an impressive klezmer mix and hopping onto the mic to interview Yiddish culture maker/impresario Frank London to honour the legacy of folk legend and activist Theodore Bikel. London’s band, The Klezmatics, are part of Der Groyser Kontsert: A Tribute to Theodore Bikel presented by KlezKanada on August 23 at Oscar Peterson Hall. It’s a pretty unique show, and we highly recommend you reach back into the CKUT archives and give it a listen
